Hi Mike,

        Metbase is my first stop when looking for info on a meteorite. If I
want to add a sample to my collection the repository info is a great help.
If I want to learn more about the meteorite the list of references is
awesome, it is almost as good as having Bernd Pauli beside you. The only
problem is that it needs to be updated. If there was an update available I
would purchase it in an instant. My guess is that the online database of the
Meteoritical society has cut into the demand for Metbase. It shouldn't,
Metbase has a great multivariate search function that leaves the Met
society's database in the dust. I hope that Metbase is updated soon, I need
a new disk and would love more info on more meteorites.

Hi List,

I was looking at the MetBase website and was curious if anyone here is
currently using the MetBase software. Do you find it useful and is it worth
the investment?

I noticed that the last update listed on the website was scheduled for 2012.
Is it still being updated?

Best regards,
